Racing Beat Testing Notes:
Sound level evaluation - The sound level output of the Racing Beat Mazda 3 exhaust system is well-suited for use on a daily driven car. Based on our driving experience with this application, both city and highway driving evaluations provided similar feedback with the exhaust system offering a modest increase in tone during acceleration, without any droning at highway cruising speeds. To maximize fuel economy, Mazda's engineer's have programmed the transmission shift points in the low 2000 RPM range, which further limits excessive exhaust tone. The upper half of the power band is typically utilized under full throttle acceleration, producing the most notable increase in exhaust tone. Aggressive but never unpleasant sounding.
